Userform - Find Matching Date in column then send data? If data exists, error message?


Board Regular
Oct 14, 2015
Hello everyone,

I have a UserForm which allows staff to pick individual workers, choose a job, then enter a quantity. The script will find all matching names that were selected and then sends the quantity to the next open column in that row. The problem is if data is entered more than once a day, usually accidentally. In the example below, someone entered payroll data twice today (25 pieces for all, then 25 for only three workers).

If I include a Date Text Box in the form, is there a way to only send the data to the matching date of the column? So that if someone tried to enter data twice for one day, an error message would pop up, saying something like "Payroll data already exists for the date selected" but only for the workers chosen.

Private Sub submitButton_Click()

Dim Found As Range
Dim i As Long
Dim msg As String
Dim Check As String
        With multiSelectListBox
            For i = 0 To .ListCount - 1
                If .Selected(i) Then
                msg = msg & .List(i) & vbNewLine
                End If
                Next i
                End With
          If msg = vbNullString Then
         'If nothing was selected, tell user and let them try again
        MsgBox "Nothing was selected!  Please select an individual(s)!"
        Exit Sub
         'Ask the user if they are happy with their selection(s)
        Check = MsgBox("You selected:" & vbNewLine & msg & vbNewLine & "Hours/Pieces: " & TextBox3.Value & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
        "Are you happy with your selections?", _
        vbYesNo + vbInformation, "Please confirm")
    End If
    If Check = vbNo Then
         'clears data and starts over
       For i = 0 To multiSelectListBox.ListCount - 1
            multiSelectListBox.Selected(i) = False
    End If
